How do you calculate the surface area of a cylinder cut in half, and then in quarters, and then in eighths?

This is for a chemistry practical involving alka-seltzer tablets. As we increase the surface area, the rate of reaction should increase as well.

Are you slicing it like a sausage (parallel to the bases) or through the bases?
